    Reagan was the first president to sanctify the principles of hate as a positive virtue. That is why democrats point to his regime as the beginning of the end.

    Vast militarism, unapologetic eradication of social services, reversal of progressive taxation through direct cuts and loopholes for wealthy, all wrapped within a false economic theory and overt jingoism.

    Reagan opened the doors of insane asylums and let them roam the streets, suffering and starving, just to save a few bucks so he could buy bombs and tanks.

    It appears the first thing Alzheimer's plaque attacks is the empathy regions of the brain.

    How did it get there?

    Was it the policies that you currently support or the policies that you attack?

    Let's face it, before Reagan's policies we were close to deficit free.

    Than after he left office it took 12 years to get back on track. As Citizen, Minty and Dog like to point out, it took only 6 years of GOP control to get us to where we are today.

    Let's face it, what you've supported has failed. It takes a mature person to admit that. It takes an immature person to keep posting pictures and mindlessly repeating talking points created by the people that created the mess.

    It amazes me that we 'discovered' that he suffered from Alzheimer's so late. I could see it in his first term.

    The topic is about reparations, not who caused the 15 trillion dollar debt.

    How can the already groosly overburdened with debt middle class possibly shell out reparations to all non white citizens because some of them ( and millions of them are non whites) are white?

    What about the Italians and the Irish and the discrimination they endured when they came here? When does this insane reparations nonsense end once and for all?
    I think your POV should be broken down a bit further.......

    One aspect being a willingness to do so............... The other perhaps is exploring a means by which to do so........

    There is no question in my mind this should have been addressed a long time ago, that didn't happen.......

    That certainly complicates it, but I don't see complication as a reason not to do what should of already been done......

    I don't wanna go off into details no one will read or care about, as w/out a will, there is no way..............

    Why are you so stupid?
    The biggest anti Christian, anti religious bigot in the forum is tooting a rightous Puritan horn trying to justify the war on the southern people over a labor system the Puritans themselves supported and particapated in.

    This is your thread and you're the thread starter .. You big government, black robed statist.

    You want the southern whites to pick up the tab for this insane dribble of yours, don't you?

    ...which is why there is "no way" anything will ever happen.

    The people with the "will" to see reparations done are powerless and irrelevant (politically speaking, that is).
